can braxton hicks cause...

backache? I'm having contractions but I don't know if they are false labor or not. Belly is hard on and off, they have gotten stronger in the last few days and my back is starting to hurt. feels like bad menstrual cramps too but they are kind of irregular.

I have been getting bouts of these really uncomfy contractions and they go away for a while but start up again if I walk for a while. Idk?

  • How frequently do you have them?
    How close together?
    How long do they last?
    When are you due?
    Are you dehydrated?

  • Well when I have these bouts of them I have them probably at least every 8-10 minutes. I have been having bh since a few days ago but they didn't start hurting til late last night and into today. They last about 45 sec. to a minute I believe. I'm due October 2nd. I'm almost 37 weeks. No I have been drinking plenty of water.
